“Amazing Food”

AROMA Indian Cuisine
Ranked #107 of 746 Restaurants in West Palm Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $6 - $25
Description: Chef Rence is the brains AND brawn behind AROMA, his newest restaurant in West Palm Beach, FL. An experienced and creative professional, his passion for cooking is only matched by his incredible talent for designing artful and delicious dishes. Chef learned to cook from his grandmother when he was just a boy. Accompanying her in the kitchen, he developed the basic skills that still serve as the foundation for his phenomenal abilities. His love for preparing excellent meals never waned, and as an adult, he attended (school name) and received a degree in food and hotel management. This opened new worlds of information and technique to Chef Rence. Following completion of his education, he traveled the world, working for the largest hotel chain in Southeast Asia, as well as large Miami Beach-based cruise line. During these travels, Chef honed his abilities by taking the opportunities to learn even more from some of the finest chefs from around the globe. In 2002, he decided to share his gift with the United States, where he went on to manage several different restaurants specializing in Indian and Thai Cuisine. For the past six years, he has successfully run his own catering company, FRESH FOOD by rence ,providing a catered fine dining experience to a range of clients and events, from small private affairs, to large corporate gatherings. Chef Rence simply loves food, cooking, and sharing a fantastic experience with others. Although Indian cuisine is his first love, he now adds a bit of fusion on his own, twisting in exotic and delicious flavors like those found in Thai, Greek, Italian, and Mexican food. Branching out soon to open a new restaurant in West palm Beach, Chef is excited to share his passion for exquisite cuisine with a new clientele. No matter where you meet him, however, you can always count on one ingredient. Every dish, every creation, every experience is prepared and served with love.

We had noticed final renovations going on in this building several weeks ago and were anxious to try it once the new restaurant opened. What a wonderfully exotic atmosphere they have created - the booths are particularly romantic - and the quite attentive staff goes out of its way to ensure that your experience is the best possible. We are generally familiar with Indian food but the variety of the choices on the menu is almost overwhelming! But one has to decide - and I tried something I had never tried before - Dosa - described as 2000 year old comfort food - which made it hard to resist. And I was impressed by its quality and presentation. You feel that you are being offered a chance to taste a proud tradition - the chef is truly a master of his craft. We also ordered garlic naan - best we have had in any Indian restaurant - and a raitha that was also the best we have had anywhere - with bits of red onion that gave it a more substantial consistency and flavor. Also had the lamb tikka masala - quite good. Everything is first-rate here - the plates are attractive, the décor is inspired, the service is exemplary. There is apparently a lunch buffet at $11.99 during the week - we haven't tried that yet but at that price, for the quality of food that we experienced, it would be a shame not to have that opportunity to try even more of the menu. We will definitely return.

Chef Rence has created a special oasis in Florida for Indian Cuisine. I was skeptical at first, but was a convert after the appetizer. I've had Indian cuisine at great restaurants in NY, London, and LA and Aroma is right there with the best. A jewel!!!
